To be fair, this is a very attractive dark amber brew poured in the tall Pilsener glass. The persistent head is a thing of beauty. We'll skip over the rhubarb and honey flavors, since I can't taste them. There is a thickish but pleasant mouthfeel. Some bitterish sensation at the finish that is generically herbal. Maybe a faint fruity flavor of unidentified origin.

If you get over getting your hopes up that this tastes like anything interesting-- it's thoroughly quaffable. I love the idea of rhubarb, which I believe is the state fruit of Alaska. However, for twelve bucks I think Midnight Sun, which I normally am fond of, is getting an Anchorage Brewing attitude.

Ale brews with rhubarb and honey.

Pours a pink toned orange with a fast fading light pink/off white head.

Nose is muted and very light. Hints of light green stone fruit but you really have to search for it. Cold nose is almost non-existent.

Mouthfeel is light carbonation with no brightness but a hint of body. No real character here.

Flavors are simple green herb bitter with nothing much else. Not a hint of honey in nose or mouth and no rhubarb tone whatsoever.

Finish is a vegetal green bitter with not much appeal, although it is long lasting, unfortunately.
